Hello and hope you are doing well.

Seizure activity goes through the aura, tonic and clonic stages, which is grand mal seizures. Others are petit mal epilepsy, which is otherwise called as absence seizures. And temporal lobe seizures are known to cause altered sense of smell or taste. If her symptoms fall into these mentioned categories, it could be seizure activity, only an EEG (electroencephalogram) can help confirm this. This is done under the guidance of a neurologist.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
